Materials and Instructional Methods

Studies come alive through a host of hands-on projects and activities. Individually chosen research plays an important role in tying together the areas of study. Students gather information through independent reading and library research, assemble reports and portfolios and give oral and written presentations which grow in sophistication and complexity over the years. Math materials are designed to be appealing and clear. They follow a series of sequential steps that enable a child to move from concrete to abstract. In language arts, great emphasis is placed on the development of strong skills in composition and creative writing. Language also includes the study of grammar (the function of words) and sentence analysis. The Montessori Science curriculum is focused on the study of life and the laws and structure of the universe. The Social Studies curriculum includes history, geography, and the cultures of the peoples and places of all countries.
